Pretty well-known around UNC circles. This is totally unrelated to the revelations - i.e., they may or may not be accurate - but he has blamed Roy Williams for his failures, and his father has frequently joined in (urged him?). For example, after Larry Drew left (purposely) in the middle of the season after Kendall Marshall replaced him in the starting lineup (there was pressure from Larry Drew's mother for him to continue starting), James McCants posted:
"He did what was best for him, simply because THE CURRENT COACH IS A PIECE OF (EXPLETIVE) (EXPLETIVE) AND i DON'T RECOMMEND ANYONE GET RECRUITED BY HIM HE WILL WRECK YOUR CAREER IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE OF HIS UNDERHANDED TACTIC AND INSINCERITY. BEWARE!!!!!!!"
Interested in what others around the league said about McCants? http://forums.realgm.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1037402&sid=459c01a4...
Contrast what he's saying today with what he said in 2004:
In an interview that aired on WRAL-TV on Friday night, McCants compared playing college basketball to being in jail. He also said he considered his time in the program to be his job.
"It's to get up and go to school, get here and lift weights and play basketball," McCants said in the interview. "That's my 9-to-5. As my uncle said, I'm in jail right now. You're not allowed to do certain things, you're not allowed to say certain things."
Many (including his teammates) always thought he was bi-polar.

Totally enjoy these interviews and insight with/from the enemy.

I read it and initially thought .oO(oh awesome, an article about Jake MotherFlucking Rya - wait, what's the last "J" for?)
Wish this meme was out during World of Warcraft days of wiping in the dragonkin egg room...bless your heart, LMFJ....

What are you posts like after a midnight snack?
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah||
Did a double take when I read "rappist."

"There's a good offense in there somewhere. When it's going to come out, I'm not sure." - Gorgeous Al, December 2013
When it's going to come out....shitty...oh, never mind

"Thick upper body, narrow from waist down, which is how I like tackles."
Mind expounding? I thought I recalled seeing a prominent coach proclaim that he looks for the opposite in OL - a big bottom/wide base. I'm thinking your preference has something to do with projected mobility/lateral movement.

With John Byrne, was it? Iconic story arc yes, but have started to take a lowered expectations approach to the X-Men movies. On a related note, thought "The Wolverine" was positively blah.
Not sure how many comic book collectors are on the site, but personally love Fassbender as young Magneto. Halle Berry I just can't get into as Storm; might be because I'm thinking of the Ororo after Forge zapped her/when she tore Callisto a new one personality. Berry comes across as very...wooden. Am warming up to McAvoy as the younger Xavier as well.

Well, apparently that cat wasn't supposed to be let out of the bag yet; Steve removed his story/article.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe he's changed.||
He used to post on Scout years ago until some huge blow up between MaizeMan, Eroc, and coachBT which resulted in MM getting banned and Eroc/coachBT moving on. Betting dollars to donuts that the name "GBMW" was their way of thumbing their noses at Scout's "GBW."
I'll never forget their 2008 spring analysis, claiming how dominant the secondary would be based on their observations. Guh.

|21 weeks 4 days ago||Thought OL woes||
mainly resulted from inexperience, youth, and constantly being put in a position to fail (e.g., lots of reshuffling/no time to gel, a variety of different blocking schemes, etc). If that is indeed the case...I presume a decent argument for maintaining Funk can be made. Moreover, iirc Funk is an inside zone guy, and of course that was a (the?) staple blocking scheme at Alabama.
|22 weeks 5 hours ago||Very nice track.||
Love how he sampled The Isley Brothers there.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Eh.||
The old argument again: do you commit to the university or to the coach?

What if a parent sees through the smoke and mirrors that attract some recruits to some programs? Chase Winovich mentioned that in a recent Mlive article. That's how I read McDowell's father's comment: he's seemingly saying that they will have input as parents, yet how influential their input will be? TBD.

..there is this pretty bad picture of this olympic squat attempt...and...
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Big deal.||
Emotional, just contributed to the game winning play, first time in the Super Bowl, perpetual "us against the world" mentality, apparently ongoing "rivalry" with Michael Crabtree, deep seated dislike for the 49ers. The media is largely interested in "real" unfiltered reactions - and they got one.
By the headlines I thought he said something...you know, actually OFFENSIVE as opposed to "I'll shut your mouth up".
|25 weeks 3 days ago||In other words...||
...downhill runners - am specifically referencing one cut and go - are better fits for IZ types (obviously Davis from the Broncos; am thinking Adrian Peterson, Earl Campbell as well for example), whereas a Barry Sanders type (running style - juke juke) is better suited for a man blocking scheme?
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Def a pleasure reading||
Thanks all for continuing to provide great insight into philosophies/blocking techniques and schemes.
